Photos from Savusavu

It's fun to be in the hustle and bustle of this busy little market town and then to be able to row back to Maunie on her mooring, just 30m from the shore, when we want a bit of peace. Here are a few photos.


Maunie, right, and a less fortunate vessel

A beautifully decorated temporary structure for the VIPs at a 'Smoke-Free Savusavu' campaign launch - attended by very few people yesterday, It took 2 days to build and was immediately torn down afterwards.

The wonderful vegetable market

Vendors sell drinks and snacks to passengers before the bus leaves

A bumpy 2-hour journey awaits

Recharging

The first elections since the coup 8 years ago will take place on the 17th September and everyone's uncertain of how it will play out. The $85 per tonne cane price would get our votes.

One of the many Indian-run 'sell everything' shops on the high street

We ate at a lovely Chinese restaurant last night - £8 per head for starter, main and 2 drinks. It wasn't the Chong Pong though.
